Howdy, friendly reading person!
I'm on a bit of a hiatus right now, but only to work on other projects -- one incredibly exciting example being the newly-released kids' science book series Things That Make You Go Yuck!
If you're a science and/or silliness fan, give it a gander! See you soon!

My Kingdom for… a Fever!

Hey, kidlets. Have a seat. I’ve got good news and bad news.

I think this will be the last Punchline Fever for a while. I’ve been having more trouble lately concocting setups, interest seems to be waning (not coincidentally, I have to believe), and today’s episode leaves us at a nice round number, which is what I did last time I put ‘da Fever’ on hiatus.

Also, I’ve got a new standup clip up, from Friday night. I didn’t even know I would be in the show until a couple of minutes before, so you may note a distinct ‘deer in headlights’ look on my face throughout the clip.

(And the tape was made with a way better camera than mine — and even burned to DVD! — so you’ll actually be able to see that look, instead of the usual fuzzy shadows. I’m not sure that’s progress, exactly, but it’s something.)

I’ll leave it to you to decide which of the above is the ‘good news’, and which is the ‘bad news’, folks. For now, though, let’s stand up, sit down, and get jiggy with this week’s Punchline Fever:

Punchline Fever #30:

The hushed crowd watched as Punxsutawney Phil emerged from his groundhog hole. If he were to see his shadow, it’s six more weeks of winter; if not, then an early spring. Phil stepped out, peed on the ground, and immediately disappeared into his burrow. ‘What the hell does that mean,’ the crowd cried. ‘Well,’ said the mayor, ‘…I guess it means we’re gonna have


There you have it. The last little bit of Fever you’ll feel for a while. Thanks to all of you who’ve played my little game — maybe I’ll bring it back again, if I can stockpile a few good setups. In the meantime… well, shit. I guess I’ll have to actually start writing real posts on Mondays. Damn. Now I know which one I think is the bad news. Eep.
